Maanga Aval Upma | Easy Tiffin Recipe Under 15 Minutes

Tangy and spicy Aval upma with mango infusion.

Poha is always a handy ingredient in my kitchen, as it makes delicious meal instantly and it blends well with any combination. I personally finds it to be an easy option for making tiffin recipes. Usually we all have tried mango rice, but never thought of with Aval/ Poha  rite. Infact this upma is much more easiest choice that takes less than 15 minutes. I'm  sure that this maanga aval would defiintely going to be hit at home. check for other raw mango recipes.
